To get my colour game going, I’m starting a new colour of the month series. To begin I’m pairing February with red. Yes, a large part of February is painted with red thanks Valentine’s Day. But I’m not thinking of John Paul Young’s song “love is in the air”.
Growing up in London, I’d see red everywhere. It was the one colour I knew how to describe the most; red postbox, red bus, red letterbox. Those iconic elements have now made way for new necessities, red shoes, red velvet cake, red lipstick.
Red is a powerful, passionate colour and is associated with excitement and energy. Positive meanings I wish to implement.
